I'm running Windows Server 2012 R2 on a Dell Poweredge R320 Server with 16 GB of RAM that is being used as a file server (With some shared Access databases on it). The Server had Windows 2008 and I changed the OS to 2012 R2. The Link speed on the Nic card is 1Gbps (Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet)
I'm having an issue with the Ethernet throughput speed, it's running very slow, between 250 Kbps and 54 Mbps (but usually on the lower end). I've been hearing a lot of complaining about everything running very slow on the server.
I've already updated the drivers on the Nic Card and updated the firmware.
Any suggestions on how I can speed this up?
